Ramos resists against Pouille and Carballés against Paul

The Catalan lifted two match points and will face Zverev. The Tenerifean won in four sleeves and will meet Shapovalov. Munar does not outperform Karatsev.


Albert Ramos ended a three-year losing streak on Tuesday without exceeding the first round of the US Open by winning with suffering in five sets against the talented Frenchman although Lucas Pouille came. The Catalan walked a tightrope with a break down in the fourth set, but forced the fifth and won with a break in the last game: 6-1, 5-7, 5-7, 7-5 and 6-4 3 : 40. Albert will have an Aúpa rival on Thursday, the German Alexander Zverev, a finalist last year.

Ramos patiently endured Pouille's barrage of winners (85, 18 of them from direct service) and did so by failing far fewer than his rival. He needed precision to take advantage of the opportunities presented to him against a tennis player who was always good at him (4-1 in the face-to-face). However, they subtracted with 5-3 against and raised two match points.

Carballés goes back to the second round

Roberto Carballés qualified for the third time, second in a row, for the second round of the US Open after winning in four sets (7-6 (8), 6-2, 1-6 and 6-3) at American Tommy Paul, a rival with potential, but fickle against whom the 28-year-old from Tenerife remained very focused to take an important victory. Carballés started the game in the best way, endorsing his dominance in the tiebreaker, and consolidating it later in the second round. In the third he was confused, but his rival lacked wickers to complete the comeback and Roberto regained his good tone to ensure the victory. Paul made 67 unforced errors, that is where the duel escaped him, and Carballés was very good in the net (20/25). He will face Canadian Denis Shapovalov, a very difficult opponent.

Munar falls before the sensation Karatsev

Jaume Munar was not able to overcome this Tuesday at the US Open the great sensation of the Australian Open, the Russian Aslan Karatsev, who was a complete stranger (in fact the Spanish easily beat him four years ago in a Challenger in Zuhai) before reaching the semifinals of the first Grand Slam of the year and is now a very difficult opponent to beat. The Mallorcan stayed at the gates of the second round of the tournament for the third consecutive year, losing 7-5, 1.6, 6.3 and 6-2 in 3:07. Karatsev will face Mager or Thompson on Thursday.

The good Aslan endorsed Munar a number of winners, 57 (only six from direct service), almost three times more than the 19 that he placed. He cared little about accumulating the same number of unforced errors (57). He rebuilt after a bad second set and then set the direct path to victory.
